IPhone Calories Burned Not Being Shown In Exercise? Blastar1 — May 18, 2019 07:05PM PDT

Previously calories burned from steps tracked by my i-phone were added to daily exercise total. They aren't being added now. Is there a setting or way that I can add the calories from steps added to exercise so that they're used in computing remaining calories? It was doing "steps calorie adjustment" on Thursday but isn't today. Help and thanks!

Thank you for contacting us with your question. If you click on the iOS Calorie Adjustment line in your diary, and then on Extra Calories Earned, we can look at the iOS calories burned vs the MyFitnessPal Calories Burned. In order to see an adjustment the iOS calories burned number must be higher. When you add an individual exercise entry, you’ll notice that you are already getting for credit for the exercise’s calorie burn in your calories remaining summary. In your adjustment detail it gets added to the MyFitnessPal number, reducing your iOS calorie adjustment by the amount of your individual exercise entry, to avoid receiving double credit for the activity. If this makes the MyFitnessPal number greater the adjustment will go back to 0 until the iOS number once again passes it.

Kind Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
